What if we could capture style and hold it in the bottle? What if that uncompromising personality - audacious, unique, mysterious, passionate, subtle - was revealed from one bottle to another by a distinct Number, until it was all held in a limited collection of wines? This is the spirit of JCB, a collection of rare numbered wines composed by Jean-Charles Boisset. Uniting centuries of Burgundian family tradition combined with the graceful exploration of sophisticated terroir.
Each JCB wine is known by a number. And each number has deep significance for Jean-Charles Boisset, the collection’s creator and namesake. No°3 signifies two worlds uniting as one to create a sum greater than its parts: one plus one equals three! Inspired by the birth of twins that bear the imprint of the old world and the new, this wine celebrates the marriage of two wine worlds united to create a grander vision in which oceans may separate us, but wines unite us... JCB No°3 is the best of both worlds!
The JCB 2010 No. 3 Red Wine is a blend of French and California Pinot Noir. The color is dark garnet, and the nose is spicy and smoky displaying notions of underbrush and red cherries. Dominated by Pinot Noir fruit characteristics, it is round, pure and velvety textured with loads of kirsch, plums and black cherries. This medium to full-bodied, elegant yet authoritatively styled effort merits serious attention. It can be drunk over the next 5-6 years.
